Credentials and Parchments

When will I be awarded my credential and receive my parchment?

Credentialing is completed within 6 weeks after each Graduation Application deadline. The Graduation Application will no longer be visible on the Graduation Overview page once you are credentialed. Your credential will be visible on your unofficial transcript in myCamosun.

Parchments are mailed via Canada Post within 12 weeks of each Graduation Application deadline. They are mailed to the ‘Ship to…’ address submitted in the Graduation Application. Parchments will not be produced if fees or fines are owed to the college.

Important: If you require a change of address for your parchment and it’s after the Graduation Application deadline, email credentials@camosun.ca. Changing your address in your student profile will not update the mailing address of your parchment.
